How Many Calories Do I Need Daily
It's not even a word, but it's the best advice I can imagine
This picture represents something very personal to me. May I ramble?
The last two years have taught me that there is nothing you can't accomplish if you set your mind to it. Sounds cliche, I know, but it's absolutely true. Will power is an amazing thing.
Motivated by a combination of about a dozen unrelated factors two years ago, I lost 90 pounds in 8 months through diet, exercise, and a lot of will power. I've kept the pounds off and am healthier -- stronger, faster -- now than I was in high school. One year ago I came up with an innovative project at work and it's proven more successful than I could have imagined at the start.
But work has been an absolute hell in recent weeks and I needed to recharge.
Yesterday -- a beautiful day in the Northwest -- I put on my Livestrong cap and went to Mt Rainier for a solo hike. I figured I'd do a challenging high-elevation hike that I've done several times before, but my energy level was through the roof and I knocked it off quickly and easily. I decided to continue up a trail that I had known about through park rangers but wasn't on any map. I ended up higher on Rainier's north side than I had ever been. All told, I hiked 8+ miles with about a 2500 foot elevation gain.
That wasn't even the end of it. When I got back to the car I unlatched my bike and rode halfway down (and then back up!) Mt Rainier itself. It was a fantastic day to push to my limits, but I didn't find any. You can live strong and then discover you can become even stronger.
So I'm posting this photo -- taken yesterday at about 8000 feet -- to remind myself during discouraging times (like the last two work weeks) that you can reach -- you can exceed -- any damn goal you choose. Challenge yourself! Live strong. Feel strong. Think strong. Anything can happen.
BTW: I took 273 photos and many of them turned out better than I could have imagined even if Ansel Adams was there coaching me. Goals were bursting all over the place yesterday. Rock songs on the radio had me pumped the whole drive home, too.
